Our origins date back to the late 1960s and an eighth-grade dropout named Kirk Kerkorian, who became one of the most famous and successful businessmen of his generation. A one-time owner of the renowned Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer movie studio (which today has no relationship to MGM Resorts International), he is widely credited as among the early pioneers of Las Vegas. He built the International Hotel in 1962—the largest hotel in the world at that time—whose first two performers were Barbra Streisand and Elvis Presley. Just four years later, he built the MGM Grand Hotel which surpassed International Hotel in size and was larger, even, than the Empire State Building.
In 2000, long after Kerkorian had left the business, MGM Grand, Inc., the holding company he founded, acquired Mirage Resorts in what was the largest transaction of its kind in the gaming industry at that time. The new company, named MGM MIRAGE, acquired Mandalay Resort Group in 2005 and retained the MGM MIRAGE name until 2010, when the Company was renamed MGM Resorts International.
Since then, what once was a casino-driven, Las Vegas-anchored operation has become a global entertainment brand, offering the world’s most exciting and diverse portfolio of guest experiences through a singular, unified strategy. No other company with roots in gaming has undergone a transformation quite like ours. A conscious strategy to take the best of our history, combine it with our largest ambitions for the future and execute with one common vision has revolutionized the way we do business. Today, many of our resorts are showcases of entertainment choices and our global suite of experiences means guests can find a little bit of the best of Las Vegas in locations throughout the United States and in other areas of the world.
